What Will Happen On My First Visit?
At the time of your initial consultation please bring the following current information:
- medications list
- dental insurance information
- health card
Please notify us of any medical conditions prior to examination or surgery which may require antibiotic premedication. If you are under 16 years of age, you must be accompanied by your consenting parent or legal guardian. We require a copy of government issued photo identification, such as your provincial Health Card, in order to prescribe narcotic and other controlled medications.
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to complete the new patient forms OR you may complete them on line.
New Patient Registration Form (includes a medical & dental history questionnaire)
During your initial examination you will meet with the doctor and his staff for a thorough oral examination, including oral cancer screening and the measurement of “pocket depths”, evaluation of risk factors, and possibly the taking of necessary digital films or scans. Generally, the first consultation appointment is for diagnostic information gathering and patient education, including case presentation of the overall condition and individual tooth prognosis. Customized and comprehensive treatment plan options, including a review of the benefits and risks, will be provided to help you reach your dental health goals.
Written fees estimate, informed consent documentation and insurance pre-authorization are always provided to patients prior to actual treatment.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office. We look forward to meeting you!
